and you'll hear from our studio audience, a former law enforcement official, gun rights activists who know firsthand why so many americans have chosen to arm themselves in order to protect their families. first, let's recap what was proposed earlier this we thiek. in addition, the president outlined legislative proposals and calling for the passage of a universal background check, something that critics say could lead to a gun ordinance data base and wants the assault weapons ban reinstated, an a ten round limit on magazines, and restrictions on bullets that can be possessed and manufactured and discussed a new gun trafficking law that penalizes those who help criminals obtain firearms, on wednesday, the americans called on americans to pressure their ehe lekted representatives in supporting these measures. let's take a look. >> get them on record, ask your member of congress if they support universal background checks to keep guns out of the wrong hands, ask if they support a ban on military style assault weapons and high capacity magazines, if they say no, ask them why not. ask them what
by law are supposed to tell us these things say that day will come in 2024. it's just 12 years, just 12 years away. and that's a day for people already on medicare and people who are going to be on medicare. medicaid, which is a program for lower income americans. it's an important program. as governor, i dealt with it in my state, but when i was governor, it was 8% of the state budget. today it's 26% of the state budget. it's soaking up every dollar or almost every dollar that would go to higher education. as a result, students around the country are wondering well, why are my tuition fees going up? it's because of washington's medicaid program requiring states to make decisions that soak uponey that otherwise would go for colleges and universities. in our state of tennessee, 30 years ago, the state paid 70% of the cost of going to the university of tennessee. today it pays 30%, and medicaid is the chief culprit. now, everyone knows this. i mean, the president's own debt commission has told him this and suggested a way to deal with it. 40 or 50 of us on both sides of the aisle have bee
. . . in the wake of his suicide california representative has proposed aaron's law, which is a federal bill that would decriminalize portions of the computer fraud and abuse act. it could be a small step in reforming our country's overreaching cyber laws. and it's beyond unfortunately that it took the loss of one of our brightest computer programmers to bring this issue tonight. professor aaron schwartz. he's also a professor of law and the director of the center for ethics at harvard university. he is joining us tonight from austin, texas. larry, i would like to welcome you back inside "the war room." >> it's great to be back. >> jennifer: yeah, you knew aaron for 12 years, i'm told and as his mentor and friend -- i'll get to the legal stuff -- but i'm curious what you would like people to remember about him. >> well, i really think of him as the mentor and me as the mentoree. he was around 14 when i first met him, and every single stage of his life, he was pushing people to -- to try to build something that was -- that fit the ideas that he had about what the inter
inability as a civil society, a nation that takes such great pride in the rule of law, to in some way come to grips with the mace of of guns and violence -- with the place of guns and violence. and before we begin this discussion, i'll just tell you one very personal anecdote. three days before the sandy hook shooting, i was in denver, colorado, on personal business. and i was driving through the denver suburbs, and i passed into aurora rah, colorado, and saw the sign and thought to myself -- as journalists often do -- oh, my god, this just disappeared from our landscape. it happened not that long ago in which a young man, now appears to be utterly deranged, b went into a movie theater and began shooting down people with an assault weapon. and it went away. the not part of the presidential debate, it was not part of the fabric of our lives, it was not part of the daily journalistic diet. so on that wednesday night i e-mailed the producer of the "meet the press" show that was coming up on that sunday in which they would be talking about big ideas that america needs to be thinking about. and
organic law. and saying that the constitution could not possibly have anticipated our every governing question. i invite you to imagine if you will, just close your eyes and just imagine the right wing outcry. if president obama called the constitution organic law. instead of saying this. liberals have always understood that, they understood it when president lincoln said it and when president obama said it. but conservatives have never, ever understood that when times change, so must we. and the day conservatives actually do understand that, they will no longer be conservatives. >>> obama land. let's play "hardball." ♪ >>> good evening. i'm chris matthews in washington. let me start tonight with this. yesterday we discovered the obama doctrine. put simply, it's to continue the american revolution well into the 21st century. defined economic equality for women, full equality all out for gay people. and full political and financial opportunity for people of color. everything about yesterday screamed with this manifesto from the makeup of the crowd to the people in the inaugural platf
be allowed to stay and not have to be held accountable for the law that they have broken. that is the debate that's unfolding right now. and today the lead democrat of this measure, new york senator chuck schumer talked about it in terms that will have some concern for amnesty. opponents because, in effect. amp the hurtles are cleared. they would be allowed to stay. watch. >> immediately, when the bill passes. people who are here living in the shadows, would get a legal right to stay here and work. they would no longer be deported provided they don't have a criminal record. >> well, supporters say that that provision that they don't have a criminal record in addition to a background check, in addition to paying fines, paying taxes and going to the back of a whole series of lines, be it for work or residency or ultimately a green card and citizenship means that it's not amnesty. that's going to be debated once again aprogressively and it all starts tomorrow when the president lays down his marker, shep? >> shepard: on his plan, karl, something similar to this of that on the house or exactly t
anyone else under the law, for if we are truly created equal, then surely the love we commit to one another must be equal as well. our journey is not complete until no citizen is forced to wait for hours to exercise the right to vote. our journey is not complete until we find a better way to welcome the striving, hopeful immigrants who still see america as a land of opportunity. until bright young students and engineers are enlisted in our workforce rather than expelled from our country. >> there's grievance there, not just rights. people waiting in line. i said this before, i was lucky to be there when south africans first got the vote, all south africans, and they waited for four or five hours, and i thought that was unbelievable. and then to watch people in america, in this advanced society of democracy, having to wait eight hours. it looked like a punitive action by republicans, to be blunt about it, from state legislatures and big capital cities that decided, you know what? let's make it hard for these people. maybe we can cut down that vote. >> that's one of those great underr
: people say tougher gun laws. views say the opposite. and you wrote a book about it. explain your reasoning. >> at that time you could not get a concealed carry permit. they did not exist. i would leave my gun in my car we were having lunch. a mad man drove his truck to the window and began executing people. i cannot tell you what it is like to be a fish in a girl waiting to be your turn. it just prevented us from being able to protect ourselves. john: leland yee you disagree? >> i used to work in the school as a psychologist. i don't know if any teacher or administrator that wants to carry a gun into a classroom or school. then why not supermarkets? hospitals? john: find. >> that is not the way we want to operate. in california we are about educating kids not to pack a gun and shoot them if somebody comes into your school. >> we're not talking about the children to carry weapons for the people who can already carry in the supermarkets. >> what is the lesson that we say to the kids? when you grow up to solve your problem carry a gun? that should not be the life lesson. john: the p

notification procedures established by law. but this change in policy to succeed, it must be done in a responsible, measured and coherent way. i would general dempsey describe her plan of action in greater detail. the bottom line is further integration of women will occur expeditiously. even as we recognize the need to institutionalize changes of this importance. the steps we announced today are significant. in many ways they are an affirmation of where we been having a state department for more than 10 years. nevertheless, it will take leadership and professionalism to effectively implement these changes. i am confident in our ability to do that because i am confident in the leadership that general dempsey in the joint chiefs of staff have demonstrated throughout this process. this has truly been a team effort and i deeply admire the extremely arrowing considerate approach they've taken. i want to express my deepest thanks to marty dempsey for his leadership in all the service chiefs who have been working on this issue and as a group, came forward with the recommendation we are i

[ male announcer ] it's called ocuvite. a vitamin totally dedicated to your eyes, from the eye care experts at bausch + lomb. as you age, eyes can lose vital nutrients. ocuvite helps replenish key eye nutrients. ocuvite has a unique formula not found in your multivitamin to help protect your eye health. now that's a pill worth taking.

of dangerous individuals has always been the law. forcing those law more effectively must become a national priority and we must also consider additional qualities -- policies. so we should start by making sure that all records of dangerous individual are headed into the national criminal background check system including mental health records, restraining orders, and other prohibiting records. it also seems to make good sense to close the gun show loophole and extend the background requirements to individual transfer of firearms with reasonable common sense but such a program must be offered for easy online application process and can be used as a foundation for gun registration program of any type. it should simply incorporate additional firearm sales into the same background check program that exist for sales from commercial dealers. exemption should be offered for family to family transaction, any instance my father had begun to me for inheritance, as was for temporary support for self-defense purposes but individuals who reside in rural areas that make the check in practical an individ
of mississippi says he wants to make it illegal in the state to enforce any new federal gun laws. how many times have we had this debate? this time after the murders of the children in newtown, conn., the president tells us this is different. the president has signed 23 executive orders aimed at reducing gun violence and is urging congress to reinstate a ban on so-called assault weapons, limit the size on magazines, and mandate here are some background checks for all gun sales. he is also asking the public to put heat on members of congress. >> remembers of congress if they support universal background checks to keep guns out of the wrong hands. the response from the nra was immediate. >> is the president's kids more important than yours? why is he's skeptical about putting our security in his school's, when his daughters have arm together school? mr. obama demands of will to pay their fair share of taxes but he is just another elitist hypocrite when it comes to his fair share of security. protection for his kids and gun- free zones for hours. -- for ours. >> at the white house, and jay carney c

's absolutely disingenuous. with personhood bills, and the trap laws that restrict abortion clinics, when you ask the lawmaker what the bill is about he always said to protect women or protect women's health. it's almost like paternalistic we're restricting abortion for the woman's own good. she's used the words i'm trying to protect women from rape it. no you're not you're trying to make it more difficult for a woman to exercise her constitutional rights to an abortion. >> cenk: a rapist has absolutely no right to force the woman he's raped to get an abortion. no such thing exists. that's totally made up. there goes one of her excuses. laura, great coverage, really appreciate it. thank you. >> thank you for having me on. >> cenk: did you know the nra was actually in favor of gun control? when they were worried that black people had guns. it's an amazing story. we've got legislators fighting back on gun control, of course be including caroline mccarthy. >> i kept saying what's wrong with all of us? how many people have to be killed before we do something? to me now? you know the kind of guys
we ask of each citizen is to respect the law, and i think that you and the rest must take care and must beware of that. another issue, it's about syria -- >> no, let's talk about the women's issue, because it's an important one. this is not, first of all, nobody in the west is trying to get women to take their veils off. the issue as described in the arab development report written by an arab woman is that there are three great deficits in the arab world x the third one -- and the third one is the rights of women. this is written by an arab about the arab world with enormous amounts of data. by any comparison with the rest of the world, the status of women in the arab world is poor. so, you know, i think part of solving the problem and dealing with it is to acknowledge that it exists. my own humble suggestion would be that you can make this into an anti-western crusade, but the truth of the matter is the women in the arab world deserve better.

of -- a fire and everybody's in to try to dheep from getting out of control. with the law, in the aftermath of that, there was a defining event and that was the iraq's encouraging in to kuwait. we saw the global presence put together by jim baker and george h. w. bush and the success in the engagement of it. but subsequent to that, we have seen a completely different scene. that is what i would describe as three alarmers and two alarmers. we about a dozen fires popping up here in different parts of the world within all of a sudden you have people who don't have the -- a lot of people in congress who don't have the previous reference have basically come to the conclusion that the world has changed and we can't afford nor do we have the public support for global open gaugement. -- engagement. when you talk to people back home and you say why do we give so much foreign aid? it is literally like saying, you know, you need to diet and lose a lot of weight and you get a haircut and solve the problem. the amount of foreign aid and presence now is shrinking to the point where it's relatively insign
proportions in this country. the laws which govern abortion are broken an estimated 1 million times a year, 3,000 times a day, for various medical, social, and economic reasons the laws do not recognize as valid. the conflict between the law and reality has resulted in a national dilemma. only recently have our abortion laws been openly questioned, has a dialogue begun among doctors, lawyers, and clergymen. >> the law's against you, your colleagues are against you, and it makes a very unhappy feeling. you hate to be a doctor under these conditions. this is simply puritanical punishment, that's all we're doing. we're not thinking this thing through. we're punishing. >> an abortion is a shock, it's an abnormal procedure. in my opinion, it's murder. in my opinion, it is a very cowardly form of murder because it's the murder of an innocent little embryo that has not harmed anyone, that cannot defend itself in any way. >> i believe i'm about nine weeks pregnant now. i have had dreams for the past two weeks about abortions, of horrible things happening to me. i can't sleep, and i need help from som

[talking over each other] >> i just wanted to come in here. they would not even consider another ratings downgrade last the medium term budget was not satisfactory, so they're not even looking for a short term. they're not even concerned about the timeframe. >> look, we can talk about all the unknowns. we do have something that our not -- something that is known. americans are getting older fillies 76 million baby boomers, 10,000 a day or so going to retire. number two, we will have to pay off the debt we're racking up. we do know that we have a problem. no, steve's point is well taken. in fact, as he recalls, it was back during the early 80's 30 years ago that ronald reagan when with alan greenspan and congress ted gets social security on a path that will leave it away from going over the cliff. that was a good lon
the nra concerns. baker says that when he mentioned the need to fully enforce existing gun laws the vice-president said this, we simply don't have the time or manpower to prosecute everybody lies on the form, checks the wrong box or answers a question and accurately. virginia state lawmaker choosing what was probably one of the most asinine ways he could have to make a point about gun-control. delegate john morrissey saying the viejo gun laws are too lax. he pulled out an ak-47 on the floor of the state house yesterday. watch him. >> i brought an ak-47 with me. here it is. point it at the ceiling. unloaded. lou: his colleagues to my gasping with surprise, even shocked. one interrupted them to suggest that he take his thumb out of the trigger guard. his dad did not work by any measure. his bill to ban the sale of assault rifles and high-capacity magazines failed to pass from a subcommittee. that gun-control group is under some severe criticism for airing what critics call a despicable and dangerous at targeting a moderate democrat. during his 2012 reelection campaign congressman john barr
majorities sensible and strengthening the current gun laws. what they support, 82% of gun owners, 72% of members actually support universal background checks. we are trying to keep guns and weapons out of the hands of dangerous people, criminals, and the seriously mentally ill. when you talk to people in west virginia, gun owners themselves want to be able to have guns in their homes. they also want to ensure that those guns do not fall into the hands of people who should not have them. the other constituency that is important is law enforcement. they are unanimous in their support for assault weapon ban for capacity magazines and closing loopholes. host: gun control could split obama, reid. they say backing restrictions could hurt the senate leader and other democrats. this story points out that for some democrats up for reelection, supporting the president will be treacherous terrain. they go on to talk about facing reelection battles in states where gun control is politically unpopular making potential votes on the proposals problematic. what might the strategy be at your organiza
, their transfer. we are different from the new york state law. we do not require registration of grandfathered weapons. and in that regard we are also different from the california law. in a sense it's a little more moderate in that regard because the gun organizations regard registration as "the first step to confiscation." >> schieffer: when somebody sells one of these guns they may have now or gives it to someone else? >> we rerequire a full background check to the transferee the person to whom the gun is transferred. >> schieffer: do you think the n.r.a. is now or less powerful than 20 years ago? >> i think they're equally as powerful. they're now supported by a lot of gun manufacturers. they've certainly extended their arm-- this morning's front page story in the "new york times" tells about their efforts to provide training and weapons to youngsters 8-15 years old. as a matter of fact, i saw a very young youngster with an ar-15 in the newspaper this morning. that's the same type weapon that was usedly at sandy hook school. i know what happened to the bodies at sandy hook school, and to h

. there are certain laws that are in place that sort of make illegal the possession of machine guns, but in terms of things like the ar-15, in terms of a lot of these some automatics this are on the market, there is actually no regulation, it sounds like. gun manufacturers get to decide what they want to market to the consumer. is that right? >> right. guns are the only consumer good that is not regulated by the federal government. there are actually more federal regulation on manufacturing bb guns than there are real guns, so it really is, you know, francly ridiculous when you look at it like that, and i think what you brought up of guns making it into the illegal market, which is a big problem, we have to realize that 40% of all gun sales in this country every year go unchecked. i mean, that's a really easy way for a legitimate gun to fall into the hands of an illegitimate person, and we need to fix that problem, and the president's proposals will do just that. >> let me bring in our wonderful panel here in new york. hans, harry reid is bringing to theoretically going to bring this legislation
michigan is the state with the republican law to let the state fire all your locally elected officials and unilaterally abolish your town if they want to on their own say so, no matter how you vote. in november this past election, michigan voters repealed that with a direct vote, the will of the people. the month after that, governor snyder and the republicans in the legislature gave the voters of michigan a big michigan republican one-finger salute. they decided to pass and sign into law a new emergency manager law to replace the one that the voters just killed. except this new one can't be killed by the voters. what's that you say? the will of the who now? i'm sorry, have we met? you know those really funny videos about the honey badger and about how the honey badger don't give a bleep? michigan republicans are the honey badgers of politics. they do not give a bleep. because michigan republicans do not care what anyone thinks of them, certainly not the press, but apparently also not the voters, michigan is my personal nominee. michigan is my nominee for the one state that is shameles
